Grignolino is a Piedmontese grape that produces a curious wine that is at once low in alcohol, tangy and significantly tannic due to its abundant seeds. It is a wine usually intended to be drunk young, perhaps to tide the population over while the more popular grape of the region, Nebbiolo, ages. Grignolino is best with richer foods as its tangy acidiy will happily pierce through any fat. (Wine/Grapes)
